Find the Right College

Learn about types of colleges and degrees.

Colleges and Universities

(four-year) offer bachelor’s degrees and advanced degrees such as master’s and doctorate’s.

Examples of professions you could pursue with these types of degrees:

• Bachelor’s Degree – accountant, teacher or graphic designer

• Master’s Degree– mental health counselor, physician assistant or librarian

• Doctoral Degree – medical doctor, lawyer or pharmacist

Community Colleges

(two-year) offer associate degrees. Many courses will transfer to a four-year college. They also offer certificates and diplomas which take less than two years.

Examples of professions you could pursue with these types of degrees:

• Certificate – construction worker, certified nursing assistant or welder

• Diploma– computer repairperson, paralegal or electrician

• Associate – heating and cooling systems mechanic, medical records technician

or human services assistant.

Private Career Schools

(for-profit) specialize in trades such as technology, business or cosmetology. Most offer certificates and diplomas; although some offer bachelor’s degrees.

For more examples of careers you can pursue with different types of degrees, see the Exploring Careers section. It also includes average starting salaries.


Selecting a College

Ask if your college offers programs that will fit your schedule.


Evening courses are an option for those who work during the day.

Weekend programs offer intense coursework on weekends allowing you to earn a degree in the same time frame as a full-time student.

Accelerated programs allow you to earn a degree in a shorter amount of time. Independent studycoursesallow you to complete coursework on your own following your instructor’s criteria.

Online degree programs are offered by many colleges. They allow you to complete coursework, participate in discussion groups, and submit papers — all via the Internet.

Distance learning offers “real-time” classes via a satellite feed or closed-circuit television.

Academic transfer programs allow you to complete up to two years of a bachelor’s degree at a community college before transferring to a four- year college or university to complete the remaining two years of study. CLEP – College-Level Examination Program® allows you to test out

of undergraduate college subjects and earn college credit without taking the course.



* See “About Nebraska Colleges” in the Adult Learner section at EducationQuest.org to find links to adult learner, veteran and online degree programs provided by many colleges.


Meet with an admissions representative and ask about:

Admission requirements– Colleges may request your high school transcript or GED certificate and scores. If you’re a fairly recent high school graduate, the college will ask for ACT or SAT scores. Otherwise, they may have you take a placement test such as ASSET or COMPASS. For more information and sample test questions, visit act.org/asset and act.org/compass.

Career assessment resources– These services will help you determine a course of study that matches your skills and interests.

Unique programs– Some colleges have programs that work with your schedule and location (see page 4).

Important deadlines– Ask about deadlines for submitting applications for admission, college-based scholarships, and financial aid.

Transferring credits– If you previously took college coursework, those credits may transfer.

Adult education– Some colleges offer coursework for adults designed to bring you up to speed in areas such as math, science and English.

Services for military veterans– If you’re a veteran, ask if the college provides assistance with accessing military educational benefits.

You should also ask about college completion rates, average student loan debt, and career placement statistics for students who attended the college.

Apply for admission.

Complete the admission application (typically online) and be prepared to pay a fee. If a separate application is required for college-based scholarships, submit it at the same time.





Credit hour – a credit in a school or college, usually representing one hour of class per week for one term. ASSET – a series of short placement tests that a college may have you take to identify your strengths and needs. COMPASS – a computer- adapted placement test that a college may have you take.





Tutoring Services

are available if you need additional help with any of your classes.

Career Counseling Centers

will help you determine the course of study that best fits your skills and personality. The staff will also help you prepare a resume, develop interview skills, and transition to a new career.

Computer Labs

are usually available throughout campus if you need access to a computer.

Child Development Centers

are available on many campuses for the children of students.

TRIO Student Support Services

is a federal program for students who are first-generation (neither parent received a bachelor’s degree), low-income, have academic need, or have a documented disability. It provides services such as tutoring, career exploration, help applying for financial aid, and classes in areas such as study skills and time management. Once you begin college, take advantage of the many resources that may be available on campus to help you succeed.



starts with the

decision to try.


Applying for financial aid isn’t difficult if you’re prepared. Follow these steps to determine how you’ll pay for college.

Learn about the types of financial aid.

Scholarships don’t need to be repaid. They may not be as plentiful for adult learners, but they do exist. Talk to the financial aid office about scholarships offered by the college.

Grants* are based on financial need and you don’t repay them. They include: • Pell Grant

• Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) • Nebraska State Opportunity Grant

• C ollege-based grants

Work-Study*is also based on financial need and provides part-time employment to help pay for college expenses.

Loans* are a type of financial aid you must repay (see page 10). They include:

• Direct Subsidized Loan • Direct Unsubsidized Loan • Direct Grad PLUS Loan

*These types of financial aid are based on FAFSA results. Create an FSA ID at fsaid.ed.gov.

The Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID is a username and password you will use for the FAFSA, IRS Data Retrieval, and to apply for student loans. You will need an email address to create an FSA ID.

HoW to

Pay for College





this is how the financial aid process works:

Award Notification Student Loan


Complete the FAFSA at fafsa.gov.

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is the application for federal, state and college-based financial aid. The colleges you list on the application will receive the results and will use that information to award financial aid.

• Apply after January 1, but before your college’s priority date, to get the best financial aid package.

• Use IRS Data Retrieval to add your income tax information to the FAFSA (available approximately two weeks after electronically submitting your tax forms).

• Complete the FAFSA every year you’re in college.

• If you need help, see FAFSA Tools at EducationQuest.org or contact EducationQuest.

Complete the financial aid process.

• Expect a Student Aid Report (SAR) acknowledging that your FAFSA was processed. You’ll receive it via email if you provide an email address on your FAFSA.

• The college might request verification of your FAFSA information. If so,

send the documents to the college’s financial aid office.

• Expect a financial aid award notification from the college detailing the types and amounts of aid they’re offering, which may include a

combination of grants, work-study, loans, and scholarships. Reply by the deadline.

• If you need student loans, complete the necessary forms at StudentLoans.gov.

Paying for College





FAFSA(Free Application for Federal Student Aid) – the application for federal, state and college-based financial aid. Student Aid Report (SAR) – a report you receive via email acknowledging that your FAFSA was processed.

Verification – the college may contact you to verify the information you provided on your FAFSA.

Financial Aid Award Notification– tells you how much the college is awarding you in financial aid.


Colleges use this standard formula:

Cost of Education (determined by the college) - Expected Family Contribution (FAFSA result) = Financial Need

Your “financial need” determines the type and amount of financial aid you will receive.

*Minimum loan payment – will take less than 10 years to repay the loan.

How colleges award financial aid

Cost of Education– cost of college for one year. Includes tuition/fees, room/board, books, personal expenses, and transportation.

Expected Family Contribution – the amount the government believes you can afford for one year of college.

IRS Data Retrieval – a process you can use when completing the FAFSA to retrieve your federal income tax data.


Direct Subsidized Loan A need-based federal student loan in which the government pays interest while the borrower is attending college. Direct Unsubsidized Loan

A federal student loan in which the borrower is responsible for all accrued interest, even while attending college. Direct Grad PLUS Loan A federal loan that allows graduate students to borrow up to the cost of education minus other types of financial aid.

Other ways to pay for college

Employer Educational Assistance Programs – Ask if your company offers tuition reimbursement, scholarship programs, or student loan repayment.

College Payment Plans – Many colleges offer a 10- or 12-month payment plan allowing you to use current income to pay college costs. Talk to your college for more details.

Home Equity Line of Credit – This allows you to borrow money as you need it which fits well with tuition payments. Interest may be tax deductible. The Military – If you’re a veteran, currently serving,

or plan to serve, you may be eligible for the G.I. Bill, tuition

reimbursement, or student loan repayment. For details, visit gibill.va.gov. Nebraska Agencies – Certain Nebraska agencies provide education assistance for those who qualify. Examples include Vocational Rehabilitation, Nebraska Workforce Development, and ResCare Workforce Services.


The federal government provides some tax benefits that may help offset college expenses for those who qualify. Income limitations may apply. Keep in mind that a credit reduces tax liability and a deduction reduces income.

American Opportunity Credit

Students must be enrolled in college at least half-time for one period of the tax year and be pursuing an undergraduate degree.

Lifetime Learning Credit

Students must be enrolled for at least one academic period beginning in the tax year. This credit is also allowed for courses toward a degree, educational credential or for classes taken to improve job skills.

Student Loan Interest Deduction

You may deduct student loan interest during all periods of required repayment. You’re not required to itemize to claim the deduction. Tuition and Fees Deduction

You may be able to deduct the cost of higher education even if you do not itemize deductions.

Talk to your tax advisor for more details about these benefits. Information is also

available on the IRS website at irs.gov.
